    I decided to check out the Netfront Beta 4 browser, but I've got a question. Why does it have a plugin to place in the flash0 of the PSP? If a person does that to their PSP3000 (modify the flash0's contents), do they not brick their PSP? If you could tell me just how to install this thing, I'd appreciate it.

    I don't know. The plugin has to go into the SEplugin folder in the memory stick. Thats were I put it. It lets you use the PSP RAM all of its power. Unlike the original which only uses half. Also the plugin is for flash.

    I forgot the name of the PSP webbrowser I use, but its icon is a dark Firefox icon and it can utilize the full processing speed of the PSP 1000 and 2000, but is restricted to 16MB of RAM for the PSP 3000.

    last time i checked it didn't write to flash.

    if needed programs can load prx's directly into RAM to avoid the need of filling up your flash.


    to my knowledge there are only 2 browsers available for the PSP.
    opera mini through a java emulator, and netfront(built-in).

    netfront 4 beta is just a special launcher for the built-in netfront which performs some speed-boosting tweaks such as unloading the XMB and unlocking the 32MB extra slim/brite RAM for cache

    opera mini is a mobile phone internet browser which requires an emulator to use.

    EDIT: did a little checck.
    the plugin is an alternative for netfront beta 4.
    the plugin replaces some of the built-in browser's files so the built-in browser has all the speedups netfront beta 4 gives without having to launch a separate eboot.
    using the plugin and the eboot at the same time will cause problems.

    I just used Opera Mini through Java, and I must say I'm extremely impressed. Facebook loaded up at least 10 times faster, and it was a lot cleaner than the PSP browser. I'm hooked - Opera Mini is a must-have for PSP users!

    Wait. So to install Netfronts Internet Browser I just download the beta 4 and put the plugin into SEPLUGIN folder then enable it. And I don't need the eboot? Should I delete it? And I Just press on the regular Internet browser and I will be using full speed?

    Also is Opera Mini Browser faster? Can it play Java games?

    EDIT: Oh I think I got it so to install it you just put the vsh folder into your Flash 0 in your PSP? And replace it with the old one? And thats it right you don't need the eboot right?

    EDIT 2: I looked up some guides and I found out I have to do this. Just put the HtmlMax_Eng in the Game folder and thats it. You don't need the VSH folder. Is that right?

    Opera Mini is so much faster. It took like 2min to load Gbatemp... But the regular browser took 5min.

    But how do I setup Netfronts?
